HEART Teacher Reflections

HEART Reflections Log-in (TDL)

What is TDL? - Teacher Design Learning is a process for teachers to self reflect on their teaching strategies, while taking on the role of facilitator/coach for their students. Teachers are asked to look at instructional strategies, activities, formative assessment, and their overall methodology to improve student learning outcomes. Data is collected by 1) observing classroom strategies over a period of 22 minutes, recording which style of student engagement is developing within 2 minute intervals; 2) tracking which type of strategies where presented in the areas of technology, engagement, instruction, and methods; 3) reflecting on your level of performance when collecting feedback and promoting student engagement.

Teachers will submit at least 4 (four) total HEART Reflections [ 3 (three) from their self observations on the TDL form and we ask that 1 (one) be done by another HEART Teacher in your school or an Administrator]. Teachers are encouraged to collect this data in their own classroom, while facilitating/coaching their students. When you log into the HEART Reflections site, you will input your data/information from your TDL form and you will need to also upload your TDL form in order to submit it.

To learn more about TDL, HEART Reflections, and how to log in, watch the videos below. Thanks!
